This Giving Tuesday... Support KHULA Education
Giving Tuesday is a day where everyone, everywhere can do something to support the good causes that mean so much to them. So we thought it would be the perfect time to launch KHULA Education's Christmas appeal which is raising money for a top-up teaching programme for 500 primary school children.
It's estimated that primary students in South Africa have lost between 70% and a full year of learning in the last 18 months.
To try and mitigate the impact on children's education, our fantastic education experts, Zinhle and Sibongile, work with three primary schools around Rorke's Drift and Isandlwana to provide support to both students and teachers. They spend time teaching with the children in class, offer mentorship to local teachers and bring in innovative teaching excercises and technology to encourage student and teacher attendance.
The result of these interventions has been remarkable, across South Africa Matric results were down around 5%, but in our supported primary schools, students saw an incredible 6% increase in pass rates!
If you are looking for a way to get involved this Giving Tuesday, be a part of our Christmas appeal - donate, fundraise and share alongside us.
